The celebrated production duo of Dru Brett and Mayne Zayne transported their inimitable style and patented "Miami Bop" to the center of the dance floor for the very first time in 2014. Given their track record as bona fide pop and hip-hop hitmakers, the pair stand poised to ignite a perspective shift in the clubs and beyond, bringing an intoxicating flavor of their own to the game.  Lifetime friends, Dru & Mayne began collaborating on tunes in 2000. They got the entire industry talking in 2006 after producing the quintuple-platinum smash, "Hustlin'" for Rick Ross. Soon, everybody from Lil Wayne and Chris Brown to Usher and Mariah Carey sought them out. They garnered a nomination for "Producer of the Year" at the 2008 BET Awards and even crafted music for television programs such as “America's Most Wanted.” Other high-profile credits include Rihanna's multi-platinum singles "Cheers (Drink to That)" and "California King Bed" as well as Cher Lloyd's "Swagger Jagger." The boys even received a Grammy Award nomination in the category of "Album of the Year" for their work on Rihanna's Loud. However, they began to find inspiration from a different fountain altogether in 2011 partially influenced by Swedish House Mafia’s One and the scene bubbling around it.


Incorporating their innate knack for a smash and fresh eyes on the scene, The Runners began fine-tuning their own sound. As a result, they channeled something slick, sexy, and soaring perfect for getting bodies moving from Miami to Madrid. Look for more from The Runners very soon.
